Grilled Pork Chops and Baked Sweet Potatoes

I have only one word to describe our dinner last night-DELICIOUS!!!! We recently splurged and finally bought a grill-we have never had one before and we are loving it!! Last night we grilled pork chops. They were amazing! Yahoo for summer!Pork Marinade

4 pork loin chops
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp ginger
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp olive oil
dash of salt and pepper

Combine all ingredients in a Ziplock bag and add pork chops. Marinate in fridge 30 minutes to 4 hours. Cook pork chops on indoor or outdoor grill and discard remaining marinade.

Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes

4 sweet potatoes
1/4 cup buttermilk
salt and pepper
shredded cheddar cheese
green onions, sliced

Preheat oven to 450*. Wash sweet potatoes and coat in olive oil, salt and pepper. Bake on baking sheet for 35-40 minutes, or until tender. Cut potatoes in half and scoop out insides of potatoes. Place potato filling in bowl with buttermilk, and season with salt and pepper and paprika. Mash it all together. Place mashed filling back in potato skins. Place back in oven on baking sheet and cook another 10-15 minutes to heat through. Once heated through top with cheese and onion. Yummy!
